The Muslim Brotherhood condemns Denmark’s burning of a copy of the Holy Qur’an and the forcible expulsion of those in (i’tikaf) from Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Muslim Brotherhood condemns the escalation of aggressive acts in the blessed month of Ramadan against the Holy Qur’an in Europe, and against worshipers and pilgrims inside the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, stressing that these hostile acts are crimes of extremism and terrorism, and deepen the feelings of anger and hatred among Muslims towards the perpetrators.
After what happened in Sweden, extremists have now burned a copy of the Noble Qur’an, on Saturday, in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, with the government’s approval and under its protection. While at the same time Israeli occupation forces stormed the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and assaulted those in i’tikaaf (devotional seclusion), forcibly expelling them from inside, in a flagrant violation of the freedom of worship guaranteed by common religious and international laws.
The group calls on the United Nations, the international community and international human rights organizations to take action to stop these repeated attacks on the Holy Quran in European capitals, and on worshipers inside the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
It appeals to Muslims everywhere to express their anger and rejection of these continuous attacks without taking into account the added sanctity of the month of Ramadaan, the month of the Holy Qur’an.
Allah is the Greatest and all praise is due to Him
Media spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood.
